Product and Financial Highlights – Fiscal 2016

  • Xilinx commenced shipments of several of its unique versions of its 16nm UltraScale+ portfolio covering all three families:  Virtex, Kintex and Zynq.  These products closely follow the delivery of our 20nm UltraScale family, which includes the industry's only 20nm high-end FPGA.  Three consecutive generations of leadership technology at 28nm, 20nm and 16nm showcase the execution of our world class development in collaboration with our foundry partner, TSMC.  
  • The Company's highly successful 20nm Ultrascale family approached $100M in sales in fiscal 2016, surpassing the Company's forecasts in every quarter of the fiscal year.   This family, which includes the PLD industry's only high-end family, is receiving adoption in a broad base of applications including wired and wireless communications, test & measurement, industrial and defense applications.
  • The 28nm product family continues on the path to be the PLD industry's most successful product family in history.  Sales from these products reached a record level as Xilinx exited the fiscal year, driven by the Zynq product family which contributed more to incremental sales growth than any other new product in fiscal 2016. Zynq continues to drive new market adoption in areas such as augmented reality, driver assist and machine vision.
  • During fiscal 2016, Xilinx paid its shareholders a record $319 million in dividends and repurchased 9.7 million shares for $443 million .  Additionally, Xilinx increased its quarterly dividend by $0.02 per share to $0.33 per share, the 11 th consecutive year of dividend increases since initiating its first dividend in 2004.  Xilinx has returned 100% of operating cash flow to stockholders in the form of dividend and share repurchase over the past ten years.     
  • Xilinx announced strategic collaborations with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and IBM to accelerate data center applications. These collaborations are expected to enable higher performance and energy-efficient data center applications through Xilinx FPGA-enabled workload acceleration.  Target applications include machine learning, network functions virtualization (NFV), genomics, high performance computing and big data analytics.
  • In the last year, Xilinx completed rollout of its SDx family of software defined development environments, significantly expanding its target user base to a much larger community of systems and software engineers.

Business Outlook – June Quarter Fiscal 2017

  • Sales are expected to be approximately flat sequentially.
  • Gross margin is expected to be 69% to 70%.
  • Operating expenses are expected to be approximately $220 million including $1 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangibles. 
  • Other income and expenses are expected to be a net expense of approximately $5 million .
  • Fully diluted share count is expected to be approximately 266 million.
  • June quarter tax rate is expected to be approximately 14%.
